Parliament returns this week after the summer recess.

Kerry will be introducing her Food Waste Reduction Bill on Wednesday, which builds on the ideas introduced in her Food Waste Bill of 2012 (see here for details). She is also setting up an All-Party Group on Food Waste, and hosting a launch event for the Bill, which has the support of many food waste and environmental charities.

On Monday Parliament will be debating the growing refugee crisis, as well as the EU Referendum Bill, and Ministers will be answering DWP questions. Other business this week includes the Finance Bill, Justice questions, Defra questions, an SNP Opposition Day debate on Wednesday, which will also be on the refugee crisis, and of course, Prime Minister's Questions, the last before Labour elects our new leader. On Friday Parliament will be debating the Assisted Dying Bill. Kerry has received almost 200 emails on this, mostly in support, but appreciates the concerns some groups have, and will be seeking reassurance on these issues. Please contact Kerry before Friday if you would like to make your views known.

Just an update to yesterday’s post on mitochrondial disease. I have to say I was rather surprised to see Professor Robert Winston – now Lord Winston – cited in the motion, as he is usually a leading supporter of genetic research. I’ve now seen a Twitter exchange between him – @profrwinston – and Dr Sarah […]
Just before recess I was at a WWF event in Parliament on environmental issues, with rather a large panel of speakers – all male, all white and, with one exception, all middle-aged. I’ve now received an invite to another ‘green’ event, from the Aldersgate Group: a ‘Dragon’s Den’ type event on 11th September with the […]
Later today, after the PM’s statement and a general debate on hospital car parking charges, there will be a debate on “Mitochondrial replacement techniques and public safety”. Here’s a BBC report which explains very simply what it’s about – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-28986843 – and an educational animated video narrated by none other than Bill Nighy http://www.thelilyfoundation.org.uk/animation/ Basically, […]

Due to new housing being built in some areas and demographic changes, some wards are deemed to be far too big – this is particularly an issue in Cabot, Lawrence Hill and Ashley wards – while others are by comparison too small. This could be […]
